After many months in the planning, designing, and reding on other peoples builds of air cleaners, the day before Thanksgiving I came upon an ad on craigslist of a JDS Air-Tech 2000 Model 750. I figured that if I was to build one – it would end up costing about as much as the JDS model, but will not have the same filtration quality, it’ll be heavier (wood construction as opposed to metal frame), and it’ll take me time to build it. time that could be used to build woodworking projects. time that I scarcely have as of late.
I called the guy the day after Thanksgiving weekend, and was told it’s still available, and so I went there after work to check it out. The Air cleaner was WAAAAAY bigger than I had expected. somehow reading the specs of it online doesn’t really do it justice. its BIG. The unit seemed to be in good shape, with some dust in it which is a good thing in this case. needless to say, I took it.
The JDS Air-Tech 2000 750 model has 3 speeds selectable with a dial switch, or with a pull chain. it came with an electrostatic pre-filter which is washable. a bag filter, and a 3rd difuser filter which is stated to have no expiration:
I guess this is the older version, as it does not come with a timer, or a remote control. but I can always get an electric outlet timer to accommodate for that, and I don’t have to worry about batteries for the remote as I don’t spend much time in the ‘shop’ lately anyways, so anything with batteries will not last long.
I vacuumed the filters clean(er) and next step would be to hang this on the beams in the garage and connect it to the lights power line.
very happy to have this upgrade, and not have to worry about having to build one and what not.
does anyone have experience with this air cleaner? what is your take on this? anything I should be looking for? anything I should check? keep attention to?
while I was taking the photo, I also took a picture of the painted doughnut that I made for the Winn DC filter as when I posted the blog about the conversion/installation process of that cartridge filter, I didn’t had it painted yet:
